Hey everyone! This is my project plan for my new inquiry topic and where I would like my work to be headed. To remind you if you don't know already, my inquiry topic is...
"What is the science behind heartbreak?"
Round #1 Research - What is heartbreak and why does it happen?
- Why is called "heartbreak"?
-Does it happen to all of us?
-What is the relation from evolution, did humans always feel this way?
-Is it always something to do with love?
Here I'm going to try out a survey, and see what my peers have to say about heartbreak!
Round #2 Research - How does heartbreak affect our body physically?
-How does it impact our mental health?
-How does it affect our willingness to try out new relationships?
-The impact it has on our sleep
Round #3 Research - How does a broken heart impact our brain?
-Emotional Pain vs Physical Pain --> How is heartbreak related to physical pain? What is the significance behind it?
-How are intrusive thoughts related? What are they?
-The symptoms of withdrawal, how can the feeling of heartbreak be related to drug withdrawal?
Round #4 Research - The science behind the healing of a heartbreak
-What does a broken heart teach you mentally? Emotionally?
-Do we risk hurt to love? What is this concept?
-How does a heartbreak motivate one to pursue happiness in the future?
This is what I have planned out for now!
Here are a list of possible resources I could use to help me throughout my discoveries:
And that's about it for now!
